to everyone. if you can please turn off any electronic sounding devices. on public comment. general public is item number four. it is again item number 12. so general public comment. you can comment on any items on calendar, but if it is not on calendar we ask you comment under those items. each person will have three minutes under public comment. we ask in order to allow ample time for all there is not a conversation going back and forth. to have your public comment and the commission can ask to answer questions afterwards. with that we are on item 2, the president's report. >> thank you. there are a couple items i want to announce and go over. one, we have had a couple ground breakings and completed projects. i want to congratulate the staff. go out and see a first-class facility. they restored a clubhouse and to make sure it got properly treated. we had a great ground breaking of the boedecker park in the tenderloin. i want to thank the commissioner that. is a true public partnership with the land and sponsors and the state, thank you. to the tune of about $4 million. that is terrific.
generally like it, there is a difference in terms of how much and on page 5, there's some more information about that in your report so it's a little more polarizing among some residents, in our feedback, we received through phone calls and e-mails, there are people who are concerned about the park but overall, people find it to be more safe and more pleasant than before and as i mentioned, we will continue to follow this project and make some additional recommendations, we'd be happy to have any input from any of you in the report and if you want to see something in the final report, you can see me separately or right now and we will be back in the spring. >> thank you very much. >> thank you, marium.

's generated. the fiscal cliff is a problem. you go over the cliff and the consequences can be beautiful% of gdp growth due to automatic cuts by six or $700 billion. the day after that, the market could fall seven or 800 points but washington will get the message. what i fear and what i think is the risk is that they will fix it with a patch that is short-term, it's not substantive, it doesn't have a lot of nutritional content to it and we are going to be right back in again and again. markets will lose confidence. we will gradually lose our global credibility as an economic leader. we might see our credit rating damaged more over time. and it is the slow defense of the united states that is the real risk. the fiscal cliff is something that can be fixed fairly easily. >> host: finally, i would like to go back, david rothkopf come to your comments about government. national government being neanderthal it. there was a throwaway line of sight while we are still organized as nation states economically. again, where we going in the future. >> i think we will see the future. because we live i
're paying a lot of money. this is one of the few park facilities that you have in your general management that is a profit center, the money being taken in under the harbor trust dictates that money's supposed to stay in there and it's supposed to be allocated from there. it is supposed to be cash neutral and in a sense, the city is about to try to gain a lot more income without meeting the minimum bare requirements, the design requirements, i think the park commission should look at those issues and respond to a formal way to look into that. >> thank you. >> is there anyone else who would like to make public comment on this item. seeing none, public comment is closed. commissioners? >> i think i might ask on behalf of the commission that we do get some kind of response in writing to the commission on the issues that have been raised. the dredging issue and some of the related -- i think there's some issues that are well above our pay great that probably the city attorney would have to weigh in on and what our responsibilities are, the contract in terms of the acceleration of rates and th
cities, with all of the flag raisings, but this is kind of new. what i said to our counsel general it's special because it's kind of bringing forth the things that we have done and the things that we enjoy doing and placing it into a recognized celebration that goes for a long time, so i am proud to launch this here in san francisco, and if i may to not only let you know that it's a great honor to have the italian ambassador here in the united states. it's a great honor for it to be proclaimed italian culture day in san francisco. if i may present this to the counsel general. [applause] >> thank you and one more word of italian that i could do is gracia because i do have a mazatti waiting for me. >> it's right out in front. >> i won't ruin your language but we're proud here to be hosting this and we're going to be of course doing more in celebration and then i will get to have a chance to visit washington dc on the experience they have as well, so thank you very much everybody.

speaker. >> president buell, commissioners, general manager ginsburg, ms. mcarthur, my name is phil chen. i'm the chair of the committee for better parks and recreation in china town. the committee is a voluntary organization that has worked with the commission of open space issues over 40 years. we starred in 1969 despite attempt business a developer to turn a playground into a garage. i'm here to speak on the proposed regulation regarding prioritis for the transbay open space impact fees. we are recognized as a es for the transbay open space impact fees. we are recognized as a high needs neighborhood. 40% of our stock in china town is made up of sro units, single room occupancy units that are eight-by-ten. there is barely enough room for a bed. when there is a bed it is standing room only. there is no bathroom in there. no kitchen. there's no closet. if you need to go to the bathroom you need to take with you a flashlight. take with you toll let paper and towels. maybe you need to take with you alcohol or other cleaning solution to clean the toilet. if you leave your toilet paper or so

dollar general obligation bond by 72% vote which was larger than the vote in 2008, and more people voted on the park bond issue than any other bond measure or proposition on the ballot which i think reflects what i've always said, that everybody in san francisco has an opinion about their parks, rarely do two people agree on that opinion and many people believe that those parks are theirs exclusively and they let us know that and we like that because i think everybody should -- they are the public open space, and so i encourage public comment and letting us know how you feel. as you can all appreciate, every decision we make pleases some people and by its nature doesn't please others, so we're trying through the committee structure to have meetings where we can try to iron out to the best degree possible those differences before they reach the commission, so i just want to thank each commissioner for their involvement and participation this year. i think it's been very constructive and congratulate phil and all the staff on a job well done. thank you. >> is there any public comment under

cutner. >> good morning commissioners and general managers. maybe it is time for good news. my name is richard rothman. i'm a city guide at coit tower but i'm speaking for myself today. i want to thank the general manager for what is going on at coit tower. when i started this for the second time a couple years ago the art commission in rec and park weren't talking. but the general manager made staff changes, now the two -- art commission and rec and park are talking, which i think is a most important accomplishment. things are moving in the right direction at coit tower. right now they are working on doing emergency repair on the roof and in the spring. you need to start restoring the murals. apparently there won't be enough funding for all the works to go about raising more money for that. the other thing that concerns me -- my wife and i worked on this in 1998. there was a report that the art commission commissioned. one of the recommendations is there be periodical inspections of the murals in the building. this did not happen and led to what we are going through now. this going

morning intelligence briefing at 7 o'clock along with general charlie. the previous day general hughes had briefed us that the chinese military were to begin extensive military maneuvers in the taiwan strait. this morning we were stunned to learn that they had fired two missiles that landed just 10 miles off the coast of taiwan. the taiwanese had a presidential election underway, and the chinese were using a not too subtle way of explaining to them what they wanted the outcome of that election to be. thises was an unacceptable form of military coercion and both the general and i agreed that a strong response was needed by the united states, something more than a diplomatic letter of protest. after some discussion we agreed to send two carrier battle groups to taiwan. within an hour the president had approved our recommendation and before the day was over, though carrier battle groups were underway steaming to taiwan. at a press conference the next day, i was asked would i not fear this would lead to military clash with china. i said, i was not concerned of that. and when asked why, i said,
of our design in the western gnoma area was to keep the general form as close to possible as what exists today did not try to add incentive bonuses for people building taller buildings and we have a city policy well craft and had to include 20% means we would add with additional height to provide higher level of inclusion dictionary and it would be under the city inclusionary policy, is that correct? in western gnoma. gnome sonoma. >> yeah the destinations here, distinction here, all of the height the zoning districts in split height are larger lots above half an acre and so for half an acre to three ache retro customers the special zoning use calls them out and says we are going to give you some additional height but to take advantage of that height it require an additional use and one of those pro visions that instead of paying a higher tier impact fee you pay a tier one impact fee for residential but instead of paying 15% or providing 15% on site affordable it refers to the tier b for afford. and so you do a higher rate of affordability which, is 20% and exchange essentially and
